The Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

It has been reported that Jennifer Lopez had one of her greatest assets—her buttocks—insured for as much as $300 million (although she has denied it). There’s no doubt that J. Lo.’s rear view is an enviable one, which is why she’s among the top celebrities potential Brazilian butt lift (BBL) patients mention in their consultations. Although surgery alone can’t instantly give you Lopez’s swoon-worthy physique (which the singer credits to an intense workout regimen and super-clean diet), a Brazilian butt lift can help you achieve the curves you crave.

According to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Moises Salama of Miami, Florida, “The Brazilian butt lift technique lifts, contours and enhances the curves of the body—not only the derriere but also the waist, hips and thighs.” Ideal for enhancing the shape of the lower body in patients who naturally lack the symmetry, curves and buttocks volume they desire (and those who have experienced dramatic weight loss or sagging in the buttocks area due to aging), BBL surgery’s benefits include an overall shapelier body as well as a major boost in confidence.“BBL can create more of a feminine, hourglass figure in women,” says Dr. Salama, but there’s more…

  • A Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction to remove excess fat from one area of a patient’s body (usually the abdomen, flanks and/or back) and transferring it to the buttocks. This means a patient sees improvement in various parts of the body after surgery, which is a significant upside of BBL surgery.
  • In addition to enhancing the actual size of the buttocks, BBL surgery can also help create a more lifted appearance and minimize the look of cellulite.
  • “The advantage of using a patient’s own fat is that there are no foreign objects or substances in the body once healing is complete, so there is no risk of implant rupture or displacement,” Dr. Salama explains.
  • A Brazilian butt lift using fat injections is less invasive than inserting buttocks implants.
  • “Since BBL uses a patient’s own fat, the procedure can be customized to achieve the patient’s desired outcomes. Unlike buttocks augmentation with implants, BBL outcomes are not limited to the sizes and shapes of implants that are available,” Dr. Salama says.
  • The incisions required for BBL surgery are so small that they are virtually undetectable once healed.
  • Brazilian butt lift results look and feel natural—as if you were born with the derriere of your dreams.
  • Final BBL outcomes are generally visible six months after the procedure is performed. Once new fat settles and integrates with the original fat, the results are long-lasting and potentially permanent.

If these Brazilian butt lift benefits sound good to you, Dr. Salama has one piece of advice: “When considering BBL, it is imperative to choose a highly qualified and extensively trained plastic surgeon who performs this procedure often and successfully to obtain the best possible outcomes.”
